Frank Shamrock Getting Sued
 
MMA WEEKLY - Your #1 Source for Daily MMA News, Interviews, Multimedia, and More

Frank has apparently breached his contract with Strikeforce by inking a deal to fight Renzo Gracie on an Elite Xtreme Combat ppv later in the year.


The lawsuit is attempting to stop Frank's fight. This also throws Shamrock's fight with Strikeforce against Phil Baroni into jeapordy.

Sounds like a big legal mess now. Im sure they will come t some sort of terms where he can fight in both events.

Shamrock seems pretty confident that he was allowed to go outside his existing contract. I cant wait to hear Shamrock chime in on all thise. :D

Lmao. I expected something like this. Frank's been all over the place (Strikeforce, World Fighter, EliteXC, IFL). I mean you can't expect them all to work out fine. Something had to conflict.

It's Frank Shamrock. He's a flake. This sort of thing was bound to happen.

Frank's fight with Renzo probably won't happen. I am not shocked. If it somehow does happen, then I hope Renzo kicks his ass. I like Frank, but he needs someone to go in there and destroy him. I'm not sure that Renzo is the guy to do it, but someone needs to bring him back to earth.

Date Posted: Thursday, February 1, 02:56 AM PST Strikeforce vs. Showtime Lawsuit Settled Strikeforce has settled their lawsuit against Showtime's Pro Elite and Frank Shamrock. The deal involves Strikeforce being able to air one of their future cards on the Showtime network. Strikeforce originally tried to sue Showtime from airing the upcoming Shamrock/Gracie fight. When the injunction failed, Strikeforce then sued Frank Shamrock for breach of contract. Showtime's lawyers stepped in and a deal was eventually agreed upon involving a Strikeforce show that could air as early as June on the Showtime network. There are now no existing barriers keeping Frank Shamrock from fighting.

The rumors can stop! I can't wait to see this fight along with the undercards. I think KJ Noons vs. Krazy Horse could turn out to be a real stand-up war.

Wow... Strikeforce just made out like a bandit on that one. If their card does well, they may end up with a PPV venue. Currently they don't have one, and they rely on their live gate and DVD sales to fund them.

wow. very interesting development. strikeforce seems to have won this one.

his fight with renzo will happen this month. since the first EXC show is scheduled for Feb. 10th. in my opinion i think frank will destroy renzo.

Strikeforce should be kissing Shamrock's a$$ for causing this trouble. They made out real good on this deal!
